It's Thursday and I love my Airstream because TODAY is my first day of retirement and Abby, our 2006 Classic 31 will soon fulfill her purpose! Larry retired 2 months ago and yesterday, my last day as a nurse of over 20 years with the University of Florida ( GO GATORS) , they gave me a wonderful party...and as a parting gift, a Campfire in a Can for those chilly camping nites:-) Since we bought her in 2011 from a wonderful women whose husband died before they could achieve the same dream, we have been gettin' her ready:
Brakerite brake actuator
P3 brake controller
Maxim skylights
TPMS
Centramatics
Mud flaps for truck to protect airstream
51 gallon tank to take her farther
TV for bedroom
Smart tv for living area
Bose speaker
Screen room for bug country
Campfire in a can as a retirement gift
Front hitch for bikes to give more room for fuel tank and ease of getting at bikes
Aluminum Rack for truck to haul canoe
Gator decal on front and rear windows to support the Gator Nation of course
And the piece d' resistance: 16" Sendel T03 wheels with 5 Michelin XPS MS2's

I think we are ready for a four month trip to New England, Nova Scotia and PEI. Looking forward to meeting some of you on the road!Click image for larger version

Taking slow at first...have been over 13,000 miles since first bringing her home from PA where we bought her, managing to go camping at least once a month and then a nice trip to Mammoth Caves and Niagra Falls last summer. Already have some great stories to tell and have learned a bunch, but the learning still continues thanks to this forum. Thanks again for the well-wishes! See ya on the road!

It's Thursday and I like my Airstream because I'll be taking it out tomorrow for a long weekend.

The first time in a number of years! Been in storage for too long. Gleefully took it out, had it cleaned/inspected/new baubles purchased... Oh so excited!!!

Nope, not original. It originally had the humdrum beige vinyl flooring, which was more recently replaced with this black and white flooring.

Happy camping!
